An old boyfriend once told me “I like women in hats. It makes them look smart.” I was never quite sure how to take that remark, but I know I took it to heart. I’ve boldly worn hats and fascinators to both casual gatherings and swanky soirees for years. At the very least, it’s a conversation starter. But this year I’m pleased to report, hats are back big time and you and I won’t be the only ones wearing one. Not since the 1940’s have hats looked so good – and I’m not talking about pull over ski beanies. Specifically I’m talking about floppy brimmed hats. Rag & Bone carries a really snazzy series of floppy brim felt hats that are both “smart” and practical. Depending on the style, you can choose from a rich pecan, navy or black. While the Rag & Bone hat is $195.00, you can find cheaper versions of the floppy hat at Kate Spade, Urban Outfitters, and Nordstrom. One of my favorites is the Nordstrom two-tone for just $48.00. The hats are warm and double as an umbrella in light rain or snow. And it’s a good way to avoid too much exposure to the sun. Flop in anytime.
This week we found ourselves at Boston University strolling down Comm Ave on the hunt for students leaving their Uggs and sweatpants in their dorm room and rocking the latest statement pieces this season has to offer. What did we find? Fabulous designer pieces, thrifty threads that won’t disappoint and ensembles we wouldn’t have thought to put together, proving that this University is up on their style trends.
